Section 13. Militia; standing armies; military subordinate to civil power

That a well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the proper, natural, and safe defense of a free state, therefore, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed; that standing armies, in time of peace, should be avoided as dangerous to liberty; and that in all cases the military should be under strict subordination to, and governed by, the civil power.

note the state is the subject of article 1.S13 , explicitly establishing the legal test for lawful limitation on authorized lawful public power as subject to "shall not be infringed",

also note the right of the people to keep and bear arms is not subject to the state, to the highest legal standard, far above "strict scrutiny" or "intermediate scrutiny" fjuckery.

that is to say, the donks ain't got legal authority, cuz no such authority exists, and never has.

you virginians might consider that point when you pen your appeals for redress of grievance.
"if you cannot trust people with freedom, then how can you trust people with power?" It is better to be a warrior in a garden, than a gardener in a war.
